CEVA Logistics has been awarded a new three-year contract to handle warehousing services and inventory management for Michelin at its Valladolid facility in north western Spain. Michelin is one of the world's leading tire manufacturers, designing and selling tires for every type of vehicle including aeroplanes, cars, bicycles, earth movers, farm equipment, heavy-duty trucks and motor cycles.
Using a space of some 55,000 sq m within its Valladolid facility, CEVA Logistics handles warehousing services, inventory management, and picking and loading of transport bound for Michelin customers, automotive manufacturers and spare parts and maintenance companies. CEVA also handles a range of tires for luxury touring vehicles, agricultural vehicles and trucks. Together these comprise some five million items per year.
Bruno Guarçone, Contract Logistics Operations Director Iberia for CEVA Logistics, says: “We are very proud of our long-standing relationship with Michelin and delighted that they have entrusted us with their business for an additional three years. Our two teams share the same goal of a relentless quest for quality and customer satisfaction in everything that we do. This renewal is further testament to our commitment to deliver the best service and solutions, counting on the expertise across the global tire sector and we look forward to further extending our partnership".
“Michelin needs a quality logistics operator who knows how to respond to our customers’ requirement and capable to adapt to the continuous evolving markets. CEVA has proven to be a professional company with capability of doing so and that is why we have decided to continue entrusting them with the logistics of our Valladolid factory for three more years”, says Jesús Alonso, Michelin Valladolid Warehouse Director.
